Hours at both the Main Library and Evergreen Branch will be reduced beginning September 2. The change is in response to staffing reductions brought about by the City of Everett's budget cuts. Although we have tried to maintain as many hours as possible, we recognize that there may be impacts we have not thought about. Therefore, the Board of Trustees has voted that the new schedule be evaluated after three months. During this period, from September through the end of November, please address any comments or suggestions to Eileen Simmons, Director at ESimmons@everettwa.gov, or 425-257-8022.
